Rangers trade deadline buzz: Is there fire behind the smoke of a Joey Gallo trade?

Rangers trade deadline buzz: Is there fire behind the smoke of a Joey Gallo trade?

Lance Lynn isn’t the only big name being thrown around in trade talks for the Rangers before the trade deadline on Monday. Current face of the franchise Joey Gallo is reportedly being pursued by several contending teams and Texas is certainly listening on those calls.

 

Gallo, only 26-years-old and still multiple seasons away from free agency, has not been immune to the Rangers’ major offensive struggles in 2020. The 2019 All-Star started out the season hot back at the end of July, but has been ice cold throughout the month of August. He’s hitting just .188 for the year and his power has not been as consistent as it was the last several seasons.

A trade of Gallo would also be a metaphorical waving of the white flag for Jon Daniels and the Texas front office on competing anytime soon. It’s probably for the best fans aren’t allowed at the new Globe Life Field at the moment, because they sure as hell wouldn’t be happy to see Gallo go.

With less than 24 hours to go before the deadline, Rangers fans need to be prepared to hold onto their butts.
